Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris Jackson recently tweeted about an ex, “The biggest flex is writing a song about someone that broke your heart, in their music taste.
“They’ll hate how much they lowkey like it lol.”
Paris Jackson surprises fans with the release of a new song “adagio” featuring Manchester Orchestra today.
The track unfolds as a simmering psychedelic slow burn. Embers of distortion glow underneath Paris’s hypnotic delivery as she locks into an unbreakable groove with Manchester Orchestra. Clocking in at just shy of seven minutes, the track culminates on a moment of empowering and entrancing catharsis. Once again, she illuminates the scope of her sweeping and soaring vision. The accompanying music video brings this emotional push-and-pull to life in vivid fashion as well.
Paris has consistently collaborated with Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull. He notably co-wrote and produced her 2020 full-length debut, wilted – listen HERE.

News, People, NME, NYLON, Refinery29, WWD and more.
